I came across the M Asam skincare and make up range several years ago on the Ideal World shopping channel whilst channel-hopping and have been really pleased with my several purchases from this German company. I have a good routine when it comes to cleansing and toning my (mature) face but had become rather lazy when it came to exfoliating so I bought a 200ml tube of their exfoliating cream off eBay for around £6 plus p&p and have been using it for the past few weeks. Beauty experts always seem to harp on about exfoliating, especially the older you get, to make skin creams and serums work more efficiently which I guess makes sense? The tube is as shown in the picture and it tells that it is intended to 'provide a gentle cleansing for beautifully radiant skin' which 'smooths, cleanses and exfoliates'. Well, I'm not sure about the 'radiance' part but I have to say this is a very effective and gentle product which makes my skin feel very soft after use without feeling tight or uncomfortable. I am probably a little too generous when I apply it as I use a plum-sized amount which does my face, neck and decollate but I do feel the benefits and is smells lovely too. I find it to be exactly the right consistency too - not thin/ runny nor thick like a face mask. I find it both easy to dispense as well as apply and I can feel the tiny jojoba pearls doing their magic but in a very gentle way and not at all harsh or abrasive. I am informed in the ingredients list that it contains apricot seed oil, aloe vera and grapeseed oil but don't let this put you off because it is not an oily product. I always use a warm, damp muslin cloth to remove facial products and the efficacy of this exfoliator is evident as I can see traces of make-up even when I have used Liz Earle's Cleanse & Polish. I feel as if my face and neck have had a real deep clean which is why I would recommend giving this a go if you have slightly dry/ mature skin.
